Those of you who are familiar with 29 avenue Rapp will be pleased to know that the building's ornate façade has recently been given a toilettage. The sensual Art Nouveau edifice built in 1900-1901 is the work of architect Jules Lavirotte, and is an easy-to-find Parisian must-see just off the Pont de l'Alma. Incontournable. The unidentified artist, incidentally, was sketching a view of the Eiffel Tower.
un toilettage: a grooming, a tidying up
incontournable: uncontestable, inescapable, a must
une properté éclatante: spanking clean
